Matamuros Loves Fresh Produce

Thats right, more produce. This time for Lee's Produce in White Center. We had plans to have 3 of the crew involved on this project, but delays and injuries meant that it was just Zach who teamed up with John from Bherd Studios to knock this out in 3 surprisingly not-freezing days in December. Please enojy:


Shout out to Kevin Sullivan for the radish, orange, watermelon styles below. Though he couldn't be there in person his sketches were manifest through John:

Also check out Zach's BLOG, he's selling his latest prints online. If you like them, get one, he needs a new transmission to continue the mural madness. Here's a preview:
